3. Cool Off at Ingram Dam.

The dam has long been a favorite for the adventurous to slide down it, whether sitting, lying down on beach blankets, or standing up. Unless your summer feet are tough and calloused by barefoot trekking, tennis shoes are highly recommended. The Guadalupe River is spring-fed, so it remains refreshingly cool, even in August. Little ones may get chattering teeth, though, so watch them carefully.

Ingram is a great place to spend the day or the weekend. Motels and hotels can be found in Ingram and in Kerrville along Highway 16. Riverfront cabins and B&Bs along Highway 39 can also be rented but often book up well in advance. If you get hungry or thirsty, Ingram offers many fine eateries from well-known fast food chains to local hangouts and casual dining. Wander inside the old-fashioned grocery store that has been there for more than half a century to stock up on snacks.
